Kate's personal touches made this a nurturing place that you won't get in most other facilities

This is a beautifully renovated property that Kate has taken great care to lovingly restore. It is very quiet and peaceful and I would have no hesitation in recommending this as a great place to stay for either a short stay or longer.

The honesty system. The relaxed atmosphere. The interesting grounds and commitment to caring for the environment. The caravan was comfortable and very clean.

About your host, Kate

I arrived on the West Coast at the tender age of 25 from Dorset, England and promptly found a place that I could call home.
After working in hospitality in Franz Josef, Hokitika, then four and a half years in Punakaiki, I bought a rundown property in Kumara.
The property had been on the market for more than 10 years and needed a lot of love. It had beautiful bones and a nice feeling even though it was rotting, wild, smashed and broken in places.

After a few hectic hard years of working full-time, learning as I went, landscaping and renovating, I took a leap of faith and opened the Villa as a holiday home.

The retreat is now entering a new phase and will be offering Yoga classes, massage, reflexology, Sudjok Korean Therapy and other healing treatments throughout summer. Hidden within a tent surrounded by wild garden and the sweet music of birdsong, this tranquil space allows you to relax, rejuvenate and reconnect with your soul and spirit.

My springer spaniel Scout is my entertainment - as well as meet and greet manager. Between us we enjoy getting to know each guest, learning and sharing the stories and going the extra mile with genuine interest and kindness. Who knows what comes next, but I see a few more large tents, a couple of powered sites, workshops for healing and yoga, organics, creating music and art and who knows what else! I am always open to ideas and feedback.
I love my home here and am happy to share the space with you. It will never be finished, it will always be a little wild and is progressing organically.

I look forward to welcoming you to my home.
